Join us once a month for a guided tour of the area's farms and agri-businesses!

Have you ever wondered about the farms and food businesses in the Hardwick area after reading an article, hearing a news blurb, or eating a delicious local treat? Well, now is your chance to learn more by exploring the region's many farms and businesses.

Join an all day caravan tour organized by the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE) the 3rd Thursday of every month beginning in May and ending in October. Hear the stories, tour the facilities, and meet the people that make this area so rich in community-based agricultural enterprises as well as the subject of countless news articles and most recently, a book.

Beginning at the offices of CAE at 10am, Tom Stearns, president of the CAE Board, will lead a group of up to 25 people, caravan-style, to several different farms and businesses in Hardwick, Craftsbury, Albany, Greensboro and East Hardwick. The tours will be informative, fast-paced, fascinating and a fun way to experience the area. The tours cost $50 per person and are free to children 10 years and younger, accompanied by an adult.

Details and a registration form can be found on the CAE website. The tour dates are as follows:

May 20, June 17, July 15, August 19, September 16 and October 21
